    Thanks Justin, and as for the electronics....I plan to have two sets of wire running through the helmet, but the battery boxes/switches will be housed on the inside of the cheeks.....so there will be no wire running out of the helmet, it's all self contained.

    Well, at least...that's the plan for now. It's subject to change!

    Re: E n c o r e

    Finished off the dome as best as I could before I get a layer of primer on there, so today I moved on to the "face" portion of Thomas' helmet.

    Starting with the upper slope. Now, I'm still paranoid with that flat step, so I taped everything off before hand with some tape.

    ( FYI. I am only using red masking tape because I couldn't find my standard green tape. This stuff sucks.)







    Really took it easy with the filler.......My resin coats were very smooth and even on this portion of the visor, so I shouldn't need much more filler than this.

    And here's a back shot....showing the smooth dome.



    Smooth sailing so far. This build will incorporate some new materials for me, so look for that coming in the next few updates.

    More to come.

    Re: E n c o r e

    Got the first layer of primer on the dome today.











    Very smooth for my first coat of primer, pretty proud of it. This is going super fast, but i still have a few spots to fill.



    More to come.

    I wouldnt do ebay...I made a pair of EL shoes and half way through the sewing the EL shorted out in some parts...I would recommend EL wire pros or livewire. both is very high quality wire.

    I got my EL wire from elwirepros and its pretty good. Even though i ordered the flame red it looks more orangeish in day light, but glowing in the dark it has an awesome red-orange glow.
    You could also try their new "Super Bright" wire. Also if you're wondering about thickness 2.2ml works perfect.
